Park it on The Patio

The patio is the perfect place to catch up with friends and relax during the warm weather.

For Texans, the patio is as much a summertime staple as shorts and flip flops, and luckily, there are an abundance of patios in the area.  And while we love a good outdoor dining space, we also have an admiration for a cool beverage to combat the summer heat.  From casual to elegant, there’s a patio for everyone, and we’ve put together a list of a few local favorites.

Mi Dia from Scratch – You’ll be happily wasting away in Margaritaville when you see the libations menu at Mi Dia.  From the traditional margarita to a chilled flight of your favorite tequilas, there’s something for every palate while relaxing on the beautiful patio.

The Ginger Man – Serving more than 100 specialty beers on tap or in bottles, this friendly neighborhood pub patio also welcomes man’s best friend.  For those feeling really parched, check out Thirsty Thirty on Thursdays, and enjoy most pints for $3 from 6-6:30 p.m.

Patrizio Osteria – Patrons have a choice of three sophisticated and stylish patios to enjoy delicious traditional Italian fare along with an extensive wine list.  Cigar lovers will appreciate the designated cigar patio upstairs.

Wildwood Grill – If you’re looking for an easy-going, casual atmosphere, look no further than Wildwood’s spacious patio.  Club 3:4:5 kicks off the fun with an assortment of small plates, house wines and Texas-sized martinis from 3:45 – 7 p.m., Sunday – Friday. 

Brio Tuscan Grille – Gather with friends or family on one of two patios inspired by a Tuscan villa.  Comfy patio furniture and a special bar menu featuring Tuscan Tastings and $5 drink specials are available on the front terrace patio while kids are welcome on the courtyard patio.

Stay tuned for our review of the new TruFire Kitchen & Bar opening in Southlake Town Square.
